About the Author

Mary Shelley (1797-1851), the only daughter of writers William Godwin and Mary Wollstonecraft, and wife of Percy Bysshe Shelley, is the critically acclaimed author of Frankenstein, Valperga, and The Last Man, in addition to many other works. Mary Shelley s writings reflect and were influenced by a number of literary traditions including Gothic and Romantic ideals, and Frankenstein is widely regarded as the first modern work of science fiction. Today s scholarship of Mary Shelley s writings reveal her to be a political radical, as demonstrated though recurring themes of cooperation and sympathy, particularly among women, in her work, which are in direct conflict with the individual Romantic ideals of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries.

Abraham (Bram) Stoker was an Irish writer, best known for his Gothic classic Dracula, which continues to influence horror writers and fans more than 100 years after it was first published. Educated at Trinity College, Dublin, in science, mathematics, oratory, history, and composition, Stoker' s writing was greatly influenced by his father' s interest in theatre and his mother' s gruesome stories about her childhood during the cholera epidemic in 1832. Although a published author of the novels Dracula, The Lady of the Shroud, and The Lair of the White Worm, and his work as part of the literary staff of The London Daily Telegraph, Stoker made his living as the personal assistant of actor Henry Irving and the business manager of the Lyceum Theatre in London. Stoker died in 1912, leaving behind one of the most memorable horror characters ever created.

What a thoroughly enjoyable compilation! Frankenstein is absolutely gripping, especially the final chapters. Count Dracula sounds just exactly as he should and The Invisible Man is a classic spooky tale. Brad Wills, narrator, is a supremely talented storyteller who creates such intricate, varied characters it's hard to believe it's only one person. This was great fun to listen to during my commute and on longer road trips. I may have even driven around the block a few times just to finish Frankenstein. Enjoy these well-loved tales, preferably under a full moon.

I have to confess that the last time I listened to an audio book was in the 90's. It was a dreadful book read by the author with lots of swallowing, lip smacking, and pregnant pauses. It made a long commute seem that much longer. Imagine my surprise and delight when listening to this trio of classic tales; Mary Shelley's Frankenstein, Bram Stoker's Dracula, H. G. Wells' The Invisible Man: Classic Monster Novels Condensed [Abridged] [Audible Audio Edition] by Joseph Lanzara (Author), Mary Shelley (Author), Bram Stoker (Author), H. G. Wells (Author), Brad Wills (Narrator). The collaboration between Lanzara and Wills on this audio book was mesmerizing. The quality of the recording is superb. Joseph Lanzara has done a great job condensing these stories for the modern listener while maintaining a sense of the time period in which they were written. The essence of each story remains without clutter or a slowing down of the tempo. Words don't feel wasted. Brad Wills' narration of Lanzara's work is masterful and the real show piece of this book. Wills brings a depth to these stories that eclipse the written word. His interpretation of Mary Shelley's Frankenstein was my favorite. He managed to capture the fanaticism and horror of Victor Frankenstein in equal measure. It fascinated me that he could manipulate his voice in such a way as to give one a real sense of Victor's character and his crisis. Brad also imbued Victor's creature with genuine pain and longing. The story evolved in the telling from a "scary story" to an exposé of the human condition. Wills' rendering of the creature's need for connection, love and understanding was truly heart wrenching.Read more ›

I recently listened to Lanzara's Classic Monster Novels Condensed. Beautifully written, I really enjoyed the way Lanzara wove these tales, his descriptions were crisp and detailed. Narration by Brad Wills was masterful. He was able to navigate through myriad characters giving each their own distinct voice. Thanks for a truly enjoyable listening experience!
